CeCe Winans has taken out two of the main categories at this year’s annual Dove Awards for Gospel and Christian music.

The veteran performer won Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for Believe For It.

She’s the first African American female solo artist to be named Artist of the Year.

She’s now won 25 Dove Awards to add to her 15 Grammys.

In her acceptance speech, CeCe said it’s amazing what God is doing in the Christian music industry.

She then burst into song with a brief rendition of To God be the glory for the things he has done. 

Anne Wilson was named New Artist of the Year with her hit My Jesus winning Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year.

Phil Wickham also won two awards for Worship Song of the Year and Worship Album of the Year.

“I just can’t believe that God would give me a voice beyond the walls of my church to write new prayers for the church to sing,” he said when accepting his awards.

CBN News reports the singer known as Doe took home the prizes for Contemporary Gospel Album of the Year and Gospel Worship Song of the Year for Breathe.
